Lovely ship but management a shambles not enough staff service very slow looks as though they are using them all on explorer very disappointing cruise by Sandra

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We disembarked in Southampton instead of sailing to Newcastle we had had enough of the cruise no seats for entertainment nowhere quiet to sit and read piped music everywhere the staff were working so hard and always pleasant but just not enough to give a proper service waited on average two hours for dinner in restaurant Very disappointed

Returned on the 1st April... by SnDafloat

Sail Date: /

Returned on the 1st April from two weeks on Marella Discovery . Had reservations before starting this trip because of some reviews , but you have to make your own mind up , we did a cruise on the Dream a few years ago , same thing , few negative reviews,but we had a great time. Firstly you have to do your research , she s 24 years old , so some things may look worn there may be an odd bit of rust . We had a balcony cabin on deck 7 , port side ,aft of amidships, slight vibration when underway , but nothing bad ,not enough to stop us sleeping or enjoying the cabin . Eating was fine , never had a cold meal, but we always eat relatively early , ate in all the restaurants, buffet ok ,but I m not a fan of walking around with my food , had breakfast there a couple of times and one evening meal , otherwise had breakfast in 47 , and some evening meals , most evening meals taken in Gallery 47(Italian based), as we were adopted by Yarra , one of the waitresses, never had a bad meal in either , most lunches taken in the Glasshouse if we were onboard , staff there good ,Ilya was always pleasant to talk to.Ate at Kora La and Surf and Turf(fee applies) excellent food and service. On sea days , sun beds could be a problem , got on the sun deck after breakfast, and most bed s were taken or had towels on them , one man was saving eleven beds , with nobody on any of them , later in the morning crew were putting notices on vacant beds with towels . All in all we enjoyed the ship , and ports of call , and the crew were excellent ,

Just come back off the... by plantycat

Sail Date: /

Just come back off the Discovery, I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be. The ship is a nice ship and an improvement in facilities, however there has been a noticeable drop in service and standards and those little touches they used to do that made things feel special. During the voyage there was an outbreak of stomach upsets so increased hygiene measures were implemented which included not being able to serve yourself with tea or coffee in the buffet restaurant yet you could serve yourself food from the stations handling serving spoons and spatulas , they had a crew member at the entrances asking passengers to sanitize their hands yet fellow crew members entering and leaving were not sanitizing . There was a power outage at one point whilst we were in our cabin which left us in the pitch dark we could see nothing, I would have thought that there would have been at least a small emergency light so you could see your way to the door without the danger of falling over something in the event of a real emergency. All in all we had a good time the food was good and the entertainment was mostly good .we will be back on the ship in August, just hope they learn to utilise the big screen by the pool and not continually play that infernal film of the two discovery ships docked over and over again every day on a loop for hours on end.

Wouldn't recommend it. The ship is tried and needs sorting. If you smoke be ready to share 8 ashtrays sit in the baking sun as there is no shade also ur pushed out the way not involed in day time actives. The bar closes at 7ish so you have to go to the next bar for a drink
